In the Spring 2016 semester, 18 JMU students took classes in Salamanca, Spain and lived with Spanish host families. During the semester, they went on a number of weekend excursions; some were part of the program but others were optional or student-organized. The course lasted until the end of April.  The trip to Portugal was from Friday, Jan 22nd to Sunday, Jan 24th, 2016. They went to Lisbon, the medieval-renaissance city of Sintra, and the beach city of Cascais.  The trip to Toledo was on Saturday, Jan 30th, 2016.  Toledo is a city that in medieval times harbored three of the world´s great religions. They visited the cathedral, a former synagogue and a former mosque; the latter two were made into churches with the re-conquest in 1492.
